Unai Emery has warned his Arsenal side to be prepared for a tough encounter when they welcome Everton to The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

The north London side are preparing to take on the Toffees in front of their home fans as they bid to make it four wins in a row in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal are aiming to be one of the main contenders for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season after they missed out on Champions League qualification for the last two campaigns.

They lost their opening two Premier League games to Chelsea FC and Manchester City before bouncing back with three straight wins in the top flight.

Arsenal also kicked off their Europa League campaign with a home win against Vorskla in front of their home fans on Thursday night.

Everton will head to Arsenal looking to take some points from the game, and Emery has warned his players that they can ill afford to underestimate the threat posed by the visitors.

Speaking at a news conference last week, Emery said: “They [Everton] have a very big history and a good coach with good players too.

“Their start has been good with lots of good moments in their games, and other moments like in their last match against West Ham.

“They didn’t win that important match [against West Ham] but maybe this is why they can be more dangerous to us because they come here and need to show their supporters that they are better than the last match.

“They lost against West Ham and they want to show us, to show their supporters, that they can win here. We need to think about our performance and work hard with respect to Everton, knowing that they have good players and good tactics. We need to impose ourselves on the game.”

Arsenal are aiming to try and break back into the top four under Emery after he was brought in as Arsene Wenger’s successor at The Emirates back in May.

They haven’t won the Premier League title since their unbeaten triumph in 2003-04.
